Budget, Health Care On Agenda For Crapo Forum

Idahoans can join the iTownhall conference on March 10th

Washington, DC - With budget deficit, tax and health care issues taking center stage before Congress, Idaho Senator Mike Crapo is seeking the input of Idahoans during a statewide telephone town hall forum scheduled for the evening of Wednesday, March 10th. Participating is as easy as signing in on Crapo's official website and answering the telephone for the forum that begins at 7:00 p.m. Mountain/6:00 p.m. Pacific.

To sign up for the iTownhall meeting, please go to Crapo's website, http://crapo.senate.gov., and click on the iTownhall icon. You will be directed to send an e-mail request with your contact information. To ensure participation in the March 10th call, you should sign up by Monday, March 8th.

"Idahoans have strong feelings about our national debt, as I heard during the recent state work period last week," Crapo said. "There are ways to improve health care that do not require dramatic tax increases and deficit spending and this town hall forum gives us an opportunity to expand our discussions about issues like health care, taxes and job creation."

A telephone is all that is needed to participate in the iTownHall meeting. Listeners are given an opportunity to ask the Senator about topics regarding federal policies or legislation, although the meeting is limited to one hour.

Following the call, an audio file (MP3) of the full call will be posted on the website. A transcript will be posted at a later date.
